DON'T QUOTE ME! Washington Newswomen and the Power Society

New York: E.P. Dutton, 1970. First Edition. Hardcover. Though best known as the daughter of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Scottie Smith (or Frances Scott "Scottie" Fitzgerald Smith, 1921-86) led an active and dynamic life in her own right. She was a writer, journalist (for The Washington Post, The New Yorker, and The Northern Virginia Sun, among others), and a prominent member of the Democratic Party. In this work, written with fellow journalist and longtime collaborator Winzola McLendon, she explores the difficulties of being a woman trying to write about politics in the late '60s. Includes eight pages of photographs. Presentation copy, inscribed by Scottie Smith on the front flyleaf: "For Jane and Van, with the very greatest love and appreciation for your being so clever as to have such an aunt - hope this book will provide a few laughs in this role of tears - Scottie." Accompanied by an invitation to a November 26, 1974 book signing event with Scottie Fitzgerald Smith at Capitol Book in Montgomery, Alabama and the memorial booklet distributed to friends and family at the time of her death. Octavo. Original paper-covered boards over a red cloth spine, with gilt titles. Some mild fading along the extremities of the boards. The dust jacket is price-clipped, with a bit of browning along the spine and folds; otherwise very good. Very good / Very good. Item #66057
